It has been a busy March, and to conclude close this month, rich in new launches, Xiaomi has unleashed the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, a flagship phone that comes with one of the most potent mobile cameras on the market.
Ever since foldable phones became an actual thing you could buy, the brands we could choose from was pretty much just Samsung, who flooded the market with multiple variants, overshadowing the likes of Huawei and Motorola who tried to get in on the action as well. Now it looks like there’s a new player in town – Xiaomi.
A few years ago, Apple announced their plans to launch a new wireless charging accessory called AirPower. This was basically a wireless charging mat that Apple claimed could charge multiple devices at once, and users did not have to worry about aligning the devices with the charging coils.
Xiaomi held a highly-anticipated launch event today for its Mi 11 line of products. However, the Mi 11 Ultra is -by far- the star of the show, mainly because of its innovative and large camera module with an OLED display in the back.Of course, we are mobile camera enthusiasts, but consider this: the Xiaomi M11 Ultra might be the best selfie camera on the market since it uses its powerful […]

For years, it has been reported that Apple was working on a new wireless charging system that could charge devices without wires, cables, charging mats, and so on. The company has filed many patents for it over the years, but they have never materialized. Even MagSafe, Apple’s most recent efforts, still doesn’t quite feel like the future we were hoping for.
The Xiaomi Mi Band is a very basic fitness device. It measures your heart rate, it tracks your steps, calories, and so on. It’s as simple as it gets and that’s not a bad thing, especially when you consider its price. However, according to the latest rumors, it seems that the next-gen Mi Band could come with a killer feature.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 on the surface appears to be a smartphone, but could there be something else lurking under the surface? Could the phone be more than what it appears to be?

5G smartphones are typically associated with higher-end, flagship models, which means that usually, it’s out of the reach for customers who can’t afford or don’t want to pay a premium just for 5G. However, Xiaomi has since announced a new smartphone in the form of the Redmi Note 9T 5G.
The new Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC (product page) is officially powered by a Snapdragon 732G processor, and is capable of many things that would normally be associated with Premium phones (~$400-$600), such as having a triple-camera setup that includes a large sensor, for example. But the Poco X3 NFC costs less than $250.You need serious image processing horsepower to handle these high-resolution sensors, especially as they take multiple shots to […]
Our televisions are these massive black screens (when not turned on) that hang out in our living rooms. You could also call them integral to a home, but who’s to say that they can’t look nice at the same time?

It is no secret that tensions between the US and China are at an all-time high, but it seems that despite the frosty attitudes both countries have against each other, Apple actually seems to be doing pretty well over in China.

Xiaomi is probably best known for creating smartphones, but in case you did not know, Xiaomi has actually created a bunch of other kinds of products like smart bulbs, screwdriver sets, air purifiers, and so on.

Wearables for the most part aren’t particularly expensive, but we get that for some, they’d rather not fork out a couple of hundred bucks for it. This is where Xiaomi truly shines, where the company’s Mi Band series has managed to help the company capture a fair bit of the market due to its incredibly low prices.
Some of you might recall that a couple of years ago, Xiaomi spin-off brand Pocophone launched the Pocophone F1. This was largely considered by many to be something of a sleeper hit, where for its price, it came with some pretty impressive flagship hardware that almost put it on par with some of the more expensive phones out there.
We do a lot on our phones these days, such as texting, calling, and surfing the web. Some of us even use it for work where we might access sensitive information that we don’t want others to see. Unfortunately for Xiaomi users, it seems that a report from Forbes has revealed that the company’s devices are apparently collecting browsing data on its users.
